Look what the postman brought me! 😀

Belated birthday gifts from a dear book loving friend, who clearly knows what floats my boat. 🙂

It has been a long while since I last had the pleasure of having the postman drop books into my mailbox. And it’s been even longer since I last received any books as birthday gifts. So naturally, I was more than thrilled to find these lovelies waiting for me at home on two separate occasions in the last two weeks.

 

My first ever volume of a Slightly Foxed edition! 🙂

Thanks to the big hearted folks over at Slightly Foxed who had a recent huge giveaway on their Instagram account (@foxedquarterly), I am now the proud owner of one of their long-coveted objects of beauty!

John Moore’s Brensham Village, which captures life in the English countryside during the 1930s, sounds like a book that’s just my cup of tea.

  1. I have yet to own a Slightly Foxed book. Isn’t it wonderful to get books in the post. It really makes my day too. Such happiness over such small things. I hope you now enjoy the stories they hold.

  2. I am happy to hear about your thrilling deliveries! I’ve heard about Slightly Foxed, but can’t remember through whose blog (if it was through a blog)… Really beautiful books. I went to check this title, ‘Brensham Village’, on the Goodreads and was surprised to find out that I have the first title of John Moore’s trilogy, ‘Portrait of Elmbury’, noted on my ‘to-read’ list. I see I added it last November, but how it got there is a mystery… I don’t think it was a recommendation…
    Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy all of the received books!
